Dainty and Demure are words that simply do not do justice in describing this burly band of ballerinas beautifully named “Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo” or fondly,”the Trocks” for short.

For over 30 years, this professional all-male ballet troupe has been amusing and amazing audiences around the globe with their enchanting performances. It is through parody, playful exaggeration and perfect timing that the Trocks create an unforgettable transforming experience that pushes the limits on the World of Dance as we know it.

Truly a renowned international dance sensation with 30 countries and over 500 cities worldwide under their tu-tus, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, live their dream as graceful diva drag queens with every show.

Black Swan takes a back seat to these big boys of ballet who are master entertainers.

Don’t miss the excitement and a chance to laugh until it hurts!  

A creative and comedic twist of the classics awaits!

The male dancers are in rare form, dressed in frilly frocks and pointe-shoes. The spirit of dance interpretation splendidly soars to new heights.
